FilmG 2019 saw some exceptional documentary entries from both high schools and independent young filmmakers. Judges were so impressed with the quality of these, they encouraged us to introduce a specific award for the Best Documentary in the youth category.
This is open to independent filmmakers of high school age and high schools who take part in the FilmG workshops process.
We would encourage young doc-makers to cover stories and topics they themselves are interested in. Entries to this category can be relaxed vlog-style documentaries, or more traditional documentaries stitched together with a strong script and voiceover.
You can see some fantastic documentaries from previous years following the links below.
